This place is our favorite Thai restaurant in the San Gabriel Valley. The Po Tak soup, spicy #3 is the best & Highly reccommended. They are always busy. Do not let the wait deter you, it is worth it. Trust me. Everyhing is fresh. The con would be their dessert menu. The only 2 items worth having would be the... More

The most rushed dinner that I have ever had. The appetizer and entree were brought out at the same time. Our plates were taken from us while we were still eating. This place is all about a quick turn around on the tables. Service was poor. Water was never refilled. Food was so-so. I will not return to this place.

What a great surprise to find this authentic Thai restaurant! The flavors were great and portions a good size. Had a wonderful Tom Kah Gai soup, delicious one choy (water spinach) and fried pompano fish. The only disappointing dish was the duck curry. The dining room was loud but much better in the outside patio room.

I love Thai food and this place did not disappoint. The atmosphere was busy but you were always being helped and everyone said hello/bye to you. Even with a large group, 18, we were served very quickly. The food came out fast and EVERYTHING was delicious. I was able to try a little of very thing and it is safe... More

The place serves Thai food and variety of selections available. A little expensive for the servings is one issue for me. The place is not recommended for a quiet meal. During peak hour, like dinner, more server can be beneficial. I commend the servers for being courteous and friendly. Much better than other Thai restaurants I've been with family. Won't... More

Although the décor reminds of what the owners think their guests think a Thai restaurant should look like, the menus with over 100 items more than compensates. With so many choices, there is definitely something for everyone. The food is not cutting edge, hipster new Thai but rather reliable preparations of traditional Thai dishes, perhaps customized a bit for American... More

I eat here weekly! The staff remembers me, I don't even need to order, they just ask if I want my usual. There red curry is AWESOME!! If you want it spicier than their scale, ask for fresh Thai chili on the side. Any item I've ordered, or others I eat with order is great.

I heard this place from many people and many years but I never went. I finally went to eat. It was really good. I ordered beef Penang, 3 flavor fish filet and seafood fried rice. Waiter recommended these three dishes. He was very nice and quick service. We also ordered two Thai ice tea. It was little bit too sweet... More

President Thai is definitely the best Thai restaurant in town! We've been eating here for a few years and their food quality is consistently excellent. We usually order too much from their huge menu but we take the rest home to enjoy later. Today, we ordered the won ton soup w/BBQ pork, grilled garlic prawns, chicken pad see ew, seafood... More
